Learn about MEG and Electromagnetic Brain Mapping

(1) Functional brain imaging: an introduction

Accessing brain activity non-invasively using neuroimaging techniques has been possible for about two decades and continues to thrive from the technical and methodological standpoints.


(2) MEG principles

The physiological sources of electromagnetic fields generated by neural cells, MEG and EEG instrumentation.


(3) Scenarios of typical MEG/EEG sessions

A successful MEG or EEG study is a combination of quality instrumentation, careful practical paradigm design, and well-understood preprocessing and analysis methods integrated in efficient software tools.


(4) Data preprocessing

The purpose of data pre-processing is to enhance the levels of signals of interest, while attenuating nuisances or even rejecting some episodes in the recordings that are tarnished by artifacts.


(5) Electromagnetic neural source imaging

MEG and EEG data can be processed to access time-resolved images of brain at work with unique temporal resolution.
